Marietta Cellars Zinfandel Sonoma County 2007
Wine Tasting Notes A classic example of the Marietta winemaking style. Ripe jammyness, complimented by balanced soft tannins allow for a huge, "fruit-forward" style wine. This is a wine that will compliment a wide variety of foods ranging from spicy appetizers to prime cut steak to fresh fruit and cheese desserts. Aromatically, this wine offers a lush, ripe nose full of sweet raspberriers and black pepper complimented with hints of oak and earthy tar. It subsequently saturates the palate with raspberries, blackberries, and a touch of swet oak. A nice dollop of fruity tannin and black pepper spice hold and extend the flavors through to a "lip-smacking" finish.
Excellent vintage for depth of fruit flavor. Deep & dark & very opaque; layers of black fruit flavors play against a floral edge & gain complexity; not one for aging but very enjoyable for its youthfull exhuberance. 91pts.
